Japanese landscape photography critique for Ali

images by Mohamed Ali

Ali

thank you for your submission. I like your work and it shows good photography skills. Let’s have a quick chat on each individual image

Kanazawa Castle – dawn perspective

The image is strong and powerfull. Colours ar every nice. I like the fact the bottom part of the image is cropped and it shows the stability and the weight of the stone, it gives a strong foundation. In terms of composition, it is a bit heavy on the right hand side with the tower as the picture dominant visual element. I would try to allow to breath a bit more and allow more space around it. Also  I feel there is a balance element missing on the left and the other distant tower should either in the picture, or out. It take a very small effort to turn this good image into a very good one.

Unlike the image above, this  one is breathing comfortably. The building has enough space around it is balanced nicely by the tree. You need to look on the sides of the images you create to attempt to either bring elements in or out. The tree on the left is half cropped. Do you think it would be better to have it in? I see the ground lines are nicely positioned in relation to the entire image. Not sure if intentional but I believe you have good reflexes to frame your image well.

This is a good image, not sure if is peaks to me emotionally but that is a subjective aspect. It might bring feelings to you, for me is a bit cold, but this is one aspect I cannot give advice. It comes from inside and it tells different things to different people.

Kenrokuen Garden

great image, a bit confusing compositions, is it about the rocks, is it about the stone arch? what do you think? is I do not know what you are trying to tell me than reframing the picture might help

I believe you are a good photographer, certainly no issues in terms of light, colour, sharpness and other aspects. What camera and what lens did you use?

I think you need just a bit more thoughts to the composition. Did you see the complete composition video?
